Is there anyone who still does the classic Clickbank + PPC promotion method nowadays? I'm not talking about direct linking, where you use your affiliate link as a destination URL to promote a product, but rather when you create a proper landing page on your own domain and pre-sell the traffic before sending it to the main sales page? Bearing in mind, we are talking about the search network, I struggle to find any decent keywords for less than $1, no matter what niche you are looking at....Or you could theoretically bid less, but then you get no traffic.... Even if you promote products with high commissions and good upsells, the numbers still don't add up...It only takes a few "bad days" with no sales or some refunds and you end up making a loss... I've been doing PPC on and off for close to 10 years now, so choosing the right keywords, writing good ads, etc - that's not a problem for me. What I find difficult is making a profit, while I'm paying $1+ per click. Anyone with a similar experience? I'm currently working with Bing Ads, if it helps. Haven't done Adwords for a long time, but they are pretty negative towards affiliates in general and I doubt the CPC would be any different there. Is this method dead nowadays or I'm doing something wrong?
